This aspect of this place meets every expectation, like anywhere … the farther from metropolis the better. Truly this is life in Technicolor. The emerald greens of Seattle, the blues of the deepest sea, long white clouds of New Zealand, beads, paints and dyes. Adopted on April 27, 1994, the flag of South Africa was designed to symbolize unity. The red, white and blue colors were taken from the colors of the Boer Republics. The yellow, black and green are taken from the African National Congress (ANC) flag. Black symbolizes the people, green the fertility of the land, and gold the mineral wealth beneath the soil.
